What does it take to move from oral history to actual change? As practitioners seeking to engage oral history as a method for not only documenting, but actively contributing to social change, we often talk a lot about our struggles. But we also need to celebrate and learn from our victories!
On March 10th, 2016, twelve people participated in the PSN Chat titled "Success Stories: From Oral History to Social Change". Practitioners Alisa del Tufo, Manissa McCleave Maharawal, and Mark D. Naison shared their experiences in successfully engaging oral history in service of social justice.
Participants were also able to ask questions and dig deeper into what it takes to move from oral history to actual change and how oral history can help make an impact on the issues we care about most.
